Have you ever considered taking a holiday in Sri Lanka? If not, it is high time that you do. The country really does have a lot to offer and you can really have a lot of fun if you plan the journey right. However, before you do any of that you will probably think about how or why Sri Lanka is such a great place to go and experience right? Here are just a few of the many varied reasons why this tiny little island nation is really getting on the world map as a holiday destination.
The culture is amazing
The rich heritage and culture of the island is just mind-blowingly colourful and enchanting. The country has a rich past that dates all the way back to 2500 BC and has legendary historical sites and monuments standing to this day that have been rumoured to be built by giants and skilled craftsman. The array of stupas (places of worship), temples and other such architectural feats will have you clicking pictures faster than you can think of and don’t be too surprised if you find your jaw hitting the floor. T is not just one type of architecture either. From the World Heritage site of the Sigiriya Rock Fortress shaped like a lion out of pure rock and the iconic frescoes on the Mirror Wall, to the cobblestone and casual post-colonial architecture of the Galle Fort by the sea or the incredible finesses of the many larger than life Buddha statues and other religious figures, you will never complain for lack of diversity.
The food is to die for
If you are thinking about touring Sri Lanka you just cannot ignore the food. The island has everything from spicy to salty to tangy or sweet and is just delicious all around. While you are travelling here, you should definitely taste the traditional and authentic dishes of the island. The rice and curry is delicious and is served at breakfast, lunch or dinner depending upon what you are in the mood for. The island also has some truly indigenous dishes that cannot be found anywhere else. The other fact is that according to the area you are travelling in, you will be able to find trademark dishes that those cities or villages are known for that cannot be tasted in any other area. There is literally no way that you will not like the spice and herb infused dishes of this tropical paradise.
The people are friendly and hospitable
One of the other things that you will find hugely satisfying about the country is its indomitable people. Even after over three decades of a civil war that ravaged the island, the people here will always meet you with a smile, they are always willing to help and will always be more than happy to share a meal with you in their homes. You will not have much trouble navigating the travel because the people here will also be willing to help you. in addition to this there are also professional tour service providers who can help you.
